When you’re just starting out as a breastfeeding mom, the idea of pumping and storing breast milk can seem overwhelming. After all, you’re already dealing with exhaustion and recovering from birth. If you’re on maternity leave, maybe you feel pressed for time to learn how to pump and start to build your freezer stash of milk.
The good news is that creating a freezer stash can be done little by little, and you can make it a simple addition to your daily routine. It’s okay not to have a month’s worth of breast milk stored. Any small amount you can save will be helpful.
